We are happy to announce that Gartmore Riding School has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This is the ‘MBE’ of voluntary awards, and was presented by the Lord Lieutenant of Lichfield on behalf of The Queen to all the volunteers who help to make Gartmore such a successful RDA centre. They received their crystal award and certificate, personally signed by Her Majesty, at a special ceremony at Lichfield Cathedral on 13th October. Mary Elliot staff also attended to lend their support, and they also received Queen’s Award pins in recognition of their involvement.
